Ni Hao! Kannichi Wa!


Some relevant history from Howard Temin's autobiographical page at [1]:

"My doctoral thesis was on Rous sarcoma virus. Much of my early work on this virus was carried out with the dose collaboration of Dr. Harry Rubin, then a postdoctoral fellow in Professor Dulbecco's laboratory. At Cal Tech, I was also greatly influenced by Professor Max Delbrück and by Dr. Matthew Meselson. After finishing my Ph.D. degree in 1959, I remained for an additional year in Professor Dulbecco's laboratory as a postdoctoral fellow. In that year, I performed the experiments that led to the formulation in the same year of the provirus hypothesis for Rous sarcoma virus."

BTW: The Harry Rubin mentioned by Dr. Temin is the husband of the Dorothy Rubin who is responsible for the possibly historic photograph that is linked here.
